Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s largest hatchery facility, Bonneville Fish Hatchery and Sturgeon Center, was constructed in 1909. The hatchery rears 8,000,000 Fall Chinook, 1,200,000 Coho, 200,000 Summer Steelhead, and 60,000 Winter Steelhead. And 1,000,000 visitors per year want to witness it. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. Not only can you see different stages of the life cycle of fish, there is also a sturgeon viewing area. These Jurassic era fish are whales as far as A1 is concerned.

I never knew before a fish hatchery could be so amazing and beautiful – and over 1,000,000 visitors! Thank you for sharing such an interesting post! 🌟🐟🐠🐟🐠🐟🐠🐟
Thank you. The hatchery is incredible. And ran by a government organization!
I’m so jealous. When we went on our Pacific Northwest explore last year, everything was closed. You are getting the best of everything on this road trip. Thanks for bringing us along.
We feel so fortunate to have planned this trip ahead of time since everything is now open.
Washington JUST changed their mask mandate though.
